hoffa. one of the persistent questions. why is this shed and driveway? >> the f.b.i. has this case. of course, they have been searching for years for jimmy hoffa's body. it came up where somebody complained they saw or know of a body that was buried at that location. he gave a couple of names that were tied in with jimmy hoffa at the time when he disappeared. that was the reason for the search. either they had to search for a body or jimmy hoffa's body. that is the reason for this. >> heather: this location it's about 30 miles west of where he was last seen. you mentioned those names. they are associated with the house itself? >> i think they are. one of them -- i'm not sure if they are relatives or not. the person who made that allegation the f.b.i., i think those names were connected in some way. one of those names are probably the prime suspect of disappearance of jimmy hoffa. >> heather: what are investigators looking for in these soil samples. what do they hope to find? >> anything they can find. any kind of bone, body, dna anything to prove there is a body there. does the f.b

the fbi is investigating. my guess is there's no formal al qaeda connection. there are groups that are supporters, it's a shadowy group of people. they might have had some historical connections to al qaeda in the past. certainly the leader of al qaeda talked about the recent death of a kind of key al qaeda libyan leader just before this event, there might be some kind of connection. but i think it's pretty early to be making any definitive conclusio conclusions. the libyans have arrested some people. there is an interview with a libyan official who says this seems to be a deliberate attack, because not only did they attack a consulate, they also attacked a safe house. it implies some kind of penetration of the libyan security services by this group. >> and it also occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. the effort to sack the u.s. embassy in cairo also occurring on the anniversary of 9/11. is that coincidental? what do you make of that? >> it's a very interesting coincidence, if it's a coincidence. the history here, wolf, is that no one was paying any attention to this vide
questions heading over his head. >> it seems miguel has made contact with fbi. he's not under direct investigation for anything and we need to make that clear, right? >> reporter: as far as we know owes not. they haven't closed the door completely on that. what the fbi doesn't want to do, they don't want to overreact. they don't want to do the same thing that other people have done. they don't want to make the mistake of shutting down free speech and creating problems in a different way. so they want to investigate everything having to do with this case, including his past including what he told his cast members and there there was any fraudulent activity in making thisfilm. at this point he doesn't seem to be under direct threat of investigation. >> i you know got your hands on the film permit for the film that is now called "innocence of muslims." what did it shed light on in terms of the story? >> reporter: these film permits are just given out. the film did air or showed just a couple of blocks from here in some form in june but the film permit itself are usually public record, u

. >> it's important to know there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certaindy what transpired. but our current best assessment based on the information we have at present is, in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo as you know a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> that was susan rice yesterday morning. now, many have a hard time believing that, includeing lindsey graham. his colleague john mccain also believes the assault was pre-planned. >> why do you think they're calling it a spontaneous attack? >> i have no clue. the facts -- the facts are so clear that heavy weapons and rocket propelled grenades, in indirect fire and direct fire used could not be spontaneous. >> with that kind of pushback, the state department seems to be trying to soften ambassador rice's statement. listen. >> we've heard a number of different thing
. >> these warships are on their way to the libyan coast, as well as dozens of marines and fbi evidence teams as the u.s. disc -- whether the violence was actually planned. >> the question is, was there a series underlying extremists or terrorist act and if so, home. >> we cannot say for sure or for certain it is an al-qaeda event. it has all the hallmarks. but we could determine overtime their baby another organization. >> muslim activists denounced the attacks. >> i condemn them and to note that they are not in keeping with the principles of the islamic printable of justice. >> on the floor of congress, senator john mccain cautioned the libyan assault does not represent the people. >> that is not the real libya. the libya chris stevens knew and learned to love so well. >> the state department has issued a travel and a rise against libya. we are seeing the u.s. stepped up security and diplomatic outposts around the world, including obviously in some of the areas where we are seeing the crowds gather. >> we are learning of a similar protest in yemen. what can you tell us about that? >> one of these lo

director of national intelligence to explain why the fbi has want been able to make it in to benghazi safely. >> reporter: the fbi is worried about security in benghazi, conducting their investigation and interviews in tripoli, 400 mile away from the scene of the attack. senator bob corker of the senate foreign relations committee wants to know why. he fired off a letter to james clapper, demanding answer, saying, in part, just ab days ago, the administration apparently judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded and it was safe for our embassador -- ambationz dorto come through the city with a small security de tail. what has changed in libya in such a short time that even fbi agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? the consulate didn't have the standard marine guard. there are calls for the resignation of u.n. bambass dorsusan rice who, said that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising against an anti-muslim video. >> five days went by. we have reports that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack, yet, the
the libyan people. >> charlie, will we see a coordination between the fbi and american officials who are coming and the libyan security officials in benghazi? >> reporter: from what we understand from libyan officials we've spoken to, that investigation is already under way. although, interestingly, we didn't see any investigators aat the compound, but yet they are spreading throughout the ben z gazi area. it was a rally, anti-american protest, but largely peaceful. what happened after that seems to have been guided and it wasn't out of anger. this wasn't an anti-american protest that exploded. this seemed to be an attack on the u.s. consulate. >> thank you very much, senior correspondent, john miller, along with chief correspondent lara logan. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do we know about the people behind the attack in benghazi? >> not much. we're in a critical stage of attribution, which is how do we figure out who it was if it wasn't a spontaneous mob? the people who showed up after the demonstrators with the guns, it was much more likely it was an organized group. tw

of the house intelligence committee, fbi man. thank you, congressman, for joining us today. your thoughts on the level of debate and the fact that frankly the republican candidate for president, took a stance and said that there was an apology from the -- from the administration and put it at the feet of the president, called it disgraceful when, in fact, that statement from the cairo embassy, whether it was worded well or not, came out six hours before these protests even started. >> well, i do think there's room for discussion in -- after we get through these troubling few days about maybe policies overall and those kinds of discussions and that's probably a fair debate to have in this upcoming election. what we should be focused on now, i think, is the fact that we lost a united states ambassador and what's key about this, we asked these folks to serve in very dangerous places. they are civilians there to represent the united states and just fundamentally try to avoid conflict. so the fact that these folks were deliberately targeted, they knew that the ambassador wouldn't be armed, is
